Teach your child the rules of school bus safety Although school buses are the safest way for children to get to school, it's still important to make sure your child follows bus safety rules. Here are just a few: Wait in a safe place away from the traffic. Never walk behind the bus. Don't stick hands, heads or objects out the windows. Don't push and shove. Walk three "giant steps" (six feet) away from the side of the bus. Wait until the driver says it's safe to get off the bus. http://niswc.com/15iQC276091 _______________________________ Enséñele a su hijo las reglas de seguridad del autobús escolar Si bien el autobús escolar es uno de los medios de transporte más seguros para que los niños vayan a la escuela, es importante que verifique que su hijo siga las reglas de seguridad cuando viaje en él. Aquí tiene algunas: Esperar el autobús en un lugar apartado del tránsito. Nunca caminar detrás del autobús. No sacar los brazos, la cabeza u objetos por la ventana. No empujar. Dar tres "pasos gigantes" (seis pies) para apartarse del autobús. Esperar hasta que el conductor diga que puede bajar del autobús. http://niswc.com/25iQC276091

Teens often learn self-discipline by trial and error Research shows that self-discipline has a positive impact on students' grades, attendance and test scores. To help develop your teen's sense of self-discipline, avoid rescuing her (unless it's a matter of safety). If she forgets her homework, for example, let her experience the consequences. And encourage her to participate in activities that require regular practice, such as playing a musical instrument or a sport. http://niswc.com/35iKC276091 ------------------_____________----------------- Los jóvenes aprenden autodisciplina mediante prueba y error Los estudios revelan que la autodisciplina tiene un impacto positivo en las calificaciones, la asistencia y los puntajes en los exámenes. Para ayudar a su joven a adquirir autodisciplina, evite rescatarlo (a menos que su seguridad esté en juego). Por ejemplo, si olvida su tarea, deje que asuma las consecuencias. Y anímelo a participar en actividades que requieran práctica regular, como tocar un instrumento musical o practicar un deporte. http://niswc.com/45iKC276091

Encourage active, organized and persistent learning To learn well, your child needs to do more than just listen in class. She needs to arrive at school well-rested and prepared, with completed homework and supplies. In class, she should ask questions, offer opinions and participate in discussions. At home, help her create a system she can use to organize her schoolwork. Encourage your child to be persistent, and show confidence that her efforts will pay off! http://niswc.com/15iJC276091 ---------_____________--------------- Fomente el aprendizaje activo, organizado y constante Para aprender con eficacia, no basta con escuchar en clase. Su hijo también tiene que llegar a la escuela preparado y bien descansado, con los materiales necesarios y la tarea terminada. En clase, debe hacer preguntas y participar en los debates. En casa, ayúdelo a crear un sistema que pueda utilizar para organizar su trabajo escolar. Anímelo a ser perseverante, ¡y muestre confianza en que su esfuerzo rendirá frutos! http://niswc.com/25iJC276091

High personal expectations motivate teens It is important for parents to have high expectations for their students' academic achievement. But it is just as critical for teens to have high expectations for themselves. Encourage your teen to envision her future and set short- and long-term goals. Help her develop her talents, and focus on what she can do, rather than on what she can't. If she hits a setback, ask, "What can you do differently next time?" http://niswc.com/35iIC276091 ----------------_______________ ------------------- Tener expectativas altas para sí mismos motiva a los jóvenes Es importante que los padres tengan expectativas altas para el rendimiento académico de sus estudiantes. Pero también es fundamental que los jóvenes tengan expectativas altas para sí mismos. Anime a su hijo a visualizar su futuro y establecer metas a corto y largo plazo. Ayúdelo a desarrollar sus talentos, y concéntrese en lo que puede hacer en lugar de lo que no puede hacer. Si enfrenta un obstáculo, pregúntele, "¿Qué puedes hacer de manera diferente la próxima vez?" http://niswc.com/45iIC276091

Treat school anxiety with listening and love A child who wakes up saying, "I don't want to go to school" and comes home crying should be taken seriously. To address your child's fears, ask, "Can you tell me what's bothering you?" Listen carefully and don't belittle his feelings. Instead, help him figure out how to cope: "What could you do now?" Also, ask his teacher about what you and she can do. Could another student be a "classroom buddy" for your child? http://niswc.com/15iMC276091 ________------------------------_________ Alivie la ansiedad por la escuela con escucha y amor Si un niño se levanta por las mañanas diciendo, "No quiero ir a la escuela" y regresa a casa llorando, es necesario tomar la situación seriamente. Para abordar el miedo de su hijo, pregúntele, "Dime, ¿qué te está molestando?" Escúchelo con atención y no minimice sus sentimientos. En cambio, ayúdelo a determinar cómo abordar la situación: "¿Qué podrías hacer ahora?" Pregúntele al maestro cómo podrían ayudarlo. Tal vez otro estudiante pueda actuar como "compañero de clase" de su hijo. http://niswc.com/25iMC276091

Begin the school year on a positive note To help your teen begin this school year on the right foot, start with a positive attitude. Even if last year was difficult, show confidence that your teen will do well. Then help her set goals and plan how to reach them. Keep in mind that she is older and can do more things for herself, so offer guidance rather than solving her problems for her. And make some time each day to discuss school with your teen. http://niswc.com/35iBC276091 ------------------------------------------------- Begin the school year on a positive note To help your teen begin this school year on the right foot, start with a positive attitude.

Time spent daydreaming can be time well spent It may sound surprising, but daydreaming can be a useful activity as kids start thinking in more abstract terms. Daydreaming helps children reduce stress. It allows them to be creative, develop empathy and spend time on self-reflection. Give your child some free time and a place where he can daydream undisturbed. Build a little downtime into family activities, too. After a ball game, relax on a hill. Watch the clouds. http://niswc.com/15iEC276091 __________________________ Soñar despierto puede ser muy útil Podría resultarle un tanto sorprendente, pero soñar y fantasear puede ser una actividad útil a medida que los niños comienzan a adquirir la capacidad de pensar de forma más abstracta. Fantasear ayuda a los niños a reducir el estrés. Les permite ser creativos, adquirir empatía y reflexionar sobre sí mismos. Dele a su hijo un poco de tiempo libre y un lugar donde pueda fantasear tranquilo. Además, agregue un poco de tiempo de descanso en las actividades familiares. Por ejemplo, después de jugar a la pelota, relájense sobre una colina y miren las nubes. http://niswc.com/25iEC276091

For Twitter/text message: Understand the difference attendance makes - http://niswc.com/35iAC276091 For email/Facebook: Understand the difference attendance makes Sooner or later, nearly every teen whines, "Do I have to go to school today?" The answer is short and simple. "Yes." Here are just a few reasons why: Students who miss school earn lower grades than those who attend regularly. They are more likely to get into trouble during the day. And skipping school can lead to troublesome adult habits. Few companies allow employees to show up only when they feel like it. http://niswc.com/35iAC276091 ---------------------------------------- For Twitter/text message: Comprenda la diferencia que marca la asistencia - http://niswc.com/45iAC276091 For email/Facebook: Comprenda la diferencia que marca la asistencia Tarde o temprano, casi todos los jóvenes se quejan y dicen, "¿Tengo que ir a la escuela hoy?" La respuesta es corta y simple. "Sí". Aquí tiene algunos motivos: Los estudiantes que faltan a la escuela obtienen calificaciones más bajas que aquellos que asisten con regularidad. También son más propensos a meterse en problemas durante el día. Y faltar a clase puede conducir a malos hábitos en la adultez. Las empresas no permiten que los empleados solo vayan a trabajar cuando quieren. http://niswc.com/45iAC276091

Attendance is critical for your child's success Children who don't attend school regularly fall behind and score lower on tests. They can have a hard time making and keeping friends. And frequent absences in elementary school can set a pattern that makes a child more likely to drop out of school later. Don't let your child skip school for reasons other than illness or emergency. If he regularly resists going to school, talk to the teacher. http://niswc.com/15heC276091 ---------------------------------------- For Twitter/text message: La asistencia es fundamental para el éxito de su hijo - http://niswc.com/25heC276091 For email/Facebook: La asistencia es fundamental para el éxito de su hijo Los niños que no asisten a la escuela con regularidad suelen atrasarse y obtener puntajes más bajos en los exámenes. También pueden tener dificultades para formar y mantener amistades. Y los niños que faltan con frecuencia a la escuela primaria son más propensos a abandonar los estudios en el futuro. No permita que su hijo falte a la escuela a menos que esté enfermo o haya una emergencia. Si se resiste a ir a la escuela regularmente, hable con el maestro. http://niswc.com/25heC276091

Greetings NCSD Families! I feel the need to inform you that we had a student make a claim that there was a bomb at PVHS. After a thorough investigation by school officials, in conjunction with the Nye County Sheriff’s Office, it was determined that there was never a credible threat to any student or staff at Pahrump Valley High School. The Nye County Sheriff’s Office took extra precaution to ensure the safety of all. Please be assured that student and staff safety is our paramount goal at PVHS and we will investigate any potential threat that may undermine our mission of school safety and academic excellence. Any threats to a school will be reported to and investigated by the Nye County Sheriff's Office. Sincerely, Mr. George Campnell PVHS Principal

Shift attention from problems to solutions Your teen is well past the age when Mom or Dad should be solving her problems. But she's not too old for a little push in the right direction. When your teen comes to you with a problem, help her think through what she can do to make it right. Ask: What in this situation is working well? What is not working well? What results are you looking for? What would you have to do to get those results? --------------------------------------------------------------- Desvíe la atención de los problemas a las soluciones Su joven ya no tiene edad para que mamá o papá resuelvan todos sus problemas. Pero tampoco es demasiado grande para que le den un empujoncito en la dirección correcta. Cuando su joven tenga un problema, ayúdelo a analizar lo que puede hacer para solucionarlo. Pregúntele: ¿Qué está funcionando bien en esta situación? ¿Qué es lo que no está funcionando bien? ¿Cuáles son los resultados que deseas obtener? ¿Qué deberías hacer para obtenerlos?

Fill your home with words for your child to read Reading with your child doesn't always have to involve books. You can help your beginning reader learn in lots of ways. For example, label furniture and household items with sticky notes (chair, table, toaster, etc.). Go around the house and read the labels with your child. Then collect the labels and ask her to replace each one on the matching item. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Llene su hogar con palabras para que lea su hijo Para leer con su hijo, no siempre hace falta que tenga un libro. Hay muchas maneras en las que usted puede ayudar a su lector en ciernes a aprender a leer. Por ejemplo, use notas autoadhesivas para etiquetar los muebles y objetos del hogar (silla, mesa, tostadora, etc.). Caminen juntos por la casa y léanlas. Luego recójalas y pídale que vuelva a pegar cada una en el objeto correspondiente.

An Apology To all of our NCSD parents and students, We had significant password compromise on our Google and IC student accounts because the passwords were based on student number. Students were using accounts that were not assigned to them. The issue did not involve outside actors. I thought resetting the passwords the day before school started would work as kids can get their passwords the next day from their teachers. Obviously, I was wrong, and I apologize. Several students have been locked out of their accounts but need to finish summer homework, which has caused great frustration. Arrangements will be made for students to have additional time on their summer assignments. Again, I'm sorry. This will not happen in this manner in the future. Sincerely, Robert Williams Director of Technology
